This sermon is part of our "Scriptural Formation Journey" series, where our whole church is going through the New Testament together. Find out more info on this journey at our website.

Journey | Matthew 13-28

Faith defines the borders of the Kingdom of Heaven. But both faith and kingdom are subject to a lot of modern misconceptions. What was Jesus getting at by claiming to be king and challenging people to a deeper faith?

Journey | Matthew 1-12

We're kicking off our Scriptural Formation Journey! Week One. We started in the Gospel of Matthew asking the question - "What do we learn about Jesus from the way this book shares the story of the Messiah?"

Peace On Earth | 5 - The Blessing

We have lots of “Why” and “What” questions for God. "Why is this happening?", "God, what are you doing?" But God, for thousands of years, has consistently had the same answer. Learn more in the final sermon in our Peace on Earth series

Peace On Earth | 3 - Peace With God

The goodness of the good news keeps better the more we get it. Scripture says that the Gospel means we are "holy," "without blemish," and "free from accusation." What if we actually believed that were true?

Peace On Earth | 2 - Shalom Makers

Everyone is chasing peace. But what if we’re called to create peace for others? What does a life of a shalom-maker look like?

Peace On Earth | 1 - Serenity Now!

(Watch Online) Everyone is chasing those "perfect" moments where everything is all as it should be. The people of God called those moments "Shalom." We all long for it, but it can't be forced, manufactured, or controlled. It must be received from the Prince of Peace who rules the Kingdom of Shalom.

Strange God | 6 - Strange Redemption

(Watch Online) We talk a lot about forgiveness but what those who are hurt by the guilty? Does mercy mean that people aren't responsible for their actions? What is the good news for those who have been hurt by the guilt? (Exodus 34:6, 7)

Strange God | 5 - Strange Forgiveness

(Watch Online) Sin is an outdated notion. In our effort to rush to "enlightenment" we still suffer the effects of sin but we've cut ourselves from the only solution, forgiveness.

Strange God | 4 - Strange Love

(Watch Online) Challenging circumstances have a way of revealing our true, internal character. Believe it or not, this is also true for God as well. What do we learn about God when He deals with difficult, unfaithful people? Spoiler alert: God is at His best even when we are at our worst.

Strange God | 3 - Strange Anger

(Watch Online) Anger makes us uncomfortable. God being angry makes us really uneasy. Many who have left the faith point toward their struggle with the wrath of God. What do we do with a God who says He gets angry?

Strange God | 2 - Strange Compassion & Grace

(Watch Online) You can't exaggerate the grace and compassion of God. We serve a God who is moved by the pain, hurt, and sin in our lives and will enter into the mess to bring grace.

Strange God | 1 - God is Stranger

If the most important thing we do is to love God then it's crucial that we have an understanding of who God really is. To do that it's crucial that we work through some of our assumptions and misconceptions about God.

The Happiness of Pursuit | Who is This God?

As we pursue God, we have to ask, "Who is this God?" The story of Exodus challenges us to embrace the mystery and awe of God.

The Happiness of Pursuit | The Second Decision

We all like to think we'd respond faithfully if our faith were tested, but we don't really know until the moment. Discipleship is the pursuit of Christ. What happens when we receive significant pushback in that pursuit?

The Happiness of Pursuit | Divine Appointments

Paul told a group of philosophers that the God of Gods had arranged individual human lives for the express purpose of seeking God. If that's true, then that means your life right now could lead you to God. How is God using your circumstances to draw you toward Himself?

The Happiness of Pursuit | Divided Heart

A half-hearted faith is like warning lights on the dashboard. It means something is wrong. Our hearts, if unchecked will pull in different directions. This will always result in human disintegration and dissatisfaction. How do we pull the separate parts of our hearts back together?

The Happiness of Pursuit | Holy Curiosity

Before loving God, before faith in God, there’s another, even more, basic element of our connection to Him. What could be more fundamental than love and faith? Explore the surprising answer with us!

Rule Your Life | Part Six - Fellowship

One's faith decision is personal. And yet, we cannot thrive as a Christian without fellowship. In Acts 2, Luke lists four marks of discipleship - only 4, and fellowship was #2. If we are not spending time together on days not called Sunday, then we are missing out.
